On 17 September 2020, the U.S. Embassy in Yaoundé issued a Demonstration Alert that reads in part as follows:

“Location: Population centers throughout Cameroon

“Event: The Embassy informs U.S. citizens that several political parties have called for demonstrations around the country on Tuesday, September 22. The Cameroonian government has not granted permission for these demonstrations. There will likely be increased law enforcement presence and the potential for conflict between security forces and demonstrators.”
